Voodoo is an ancestor-based spiritist-animist religious tradition, that has its roots in West Africa. It was brought to Cuba, Haiti, Brazil where it incorporated local traditions. Under Voodoo beliefs, there is one God, creator of all, and hundreds of spirits called Iwa, governing differents aspects of life.
As a Voodoo initiate, you have many Iwa affecting your life, but only one that owns your head. You achieve harmony with yourself and the world around you by serving your spirits.
If you are a houngan (priest) or manbo (priestess), it is your responsibility to preserve rituals, and maintain the relationship between the spirits and the community. Rituals are an occasion for communication with the spirits : after an opening made of prayers, songs, and salutations, Iwa will take possession of those engaged in the ceremony, act through them, bringing them advice and healing.
Iwa on the whole are quite demanding, yet some may be more than others. Some things and actions may or may not be appropriate, depending on the Iwa that owns your head.
